  1. 1. Building Information Modelling: From 2D collaboration to integrated project delivery in nD – work (almost) in progress by Paul Wilkinson (BIW Technologies / pwcom.co.uk Ltd) For UCLAN Innovation Circle, 08 May 2009
  2. 2. Presentation overview <ul><li>Collaboration – 1990s </li></ul><ul><li>Collaboration – 2000s </li></ul><ul><li>Building Information Modelling (BIM) </li></ul><ul><li>Issues raised by BIM </li></ul><ul><li>Where are we today with BIM adoption? </li></ul><ul><li>The future? </li></ul>
  3. 3. Specs Drawings Minutes Programmes Cost plans etc Email Courier Post Fax Traditional AEC collaboration (c. 1990s)
  4. 4. <ul><li>Online file management </li></ul><ul><li>Fewer interoperability issues </li></ul><ul><li>Less paper </li></ul><ul><li>Latest information available to all </li></ul><ul><li>Complete record of project </li></ul><ul><li>Full information audit trail </li></ul><ul><li>Single central repository of information </li></ul><ul><li>Greater re-use of information (eg: for H&S File, standards, tendering, defects mgmt, O&M, etc) </li></ul><ul><li>But nearly all still 2D </li></ul><ul><li>Heavy reliance on CAD </li></ul>Online AEC collaboration (c. 2000s)
  5. 5. BIM is not CAD <ul><li>“ CAD helps people to draw. BIM helps people to construct.” (Richard Saxon, Ecobuild, February 2009) </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;BIM is not CAD. BIM was never meant to be CAD. CAD is a replacement for pen and paper, a documentation tool. By comparison, BIM programs are design applications in which the documentation flows from and is a derivative of the process, from schematic design to construction to facility management.“ ( Pete Zyskowski , Cadalyst ) </li></ul>
  6. 6. Building Information Modelling (BIM)

  10. 10. Where are we today with BIM adoption? <ul><li>USA estimates (2009) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>CAD managers survey ( Robert Green, Cadalyst ) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>market is still very 2D-centric : </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Totally 2D -- 19% </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Mainly 2D but evaluating 3D -- 51% </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Hybrid 2D/3D -- 24% </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Totally 3D -- 6% </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>AEC market is worse: </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Totally 2D -- 33% </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Mainly 2D but evaluating 3D -- 51% </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Hybrid 2D/3D -- 14% </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Totally 3D -- 2% </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>but civil engineering ahead of the rest </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Totally 2D -- 23% </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Mainly 2D but evaluating 3D -- 45% </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Hybrid 2D/3D -- 21% </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Totally 3D -- 11% </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  11. 11. Where are we today with BIM adoption? <ul><li>USA estimates (2009) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Structural engineers survey ( GoStructural.com ) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>BIM familiarity 97% (from 29% in 2006) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>44% have used BIM (23% in 2006) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Only 2% firms using BIM on all projects </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>41% don’t use BIM at all </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>When will BIM be used by 50% of industry? 43% said within 5-10 years (less saying “never”!) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>When will BIM be used by 90% of industry? 53% said within 15 years </li></ul></ul></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><li>Most commentators suggest UK is lagging behind USA </li></ul><ul><li>Recession: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Right time or wrong time to invest? </li></ul></ul>Where are we today with BIM adoption?
  13. 13. The future? <ul><li>From: substantial in-house investment in hardware and software, training, etc </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Autodesk Revit, Bentley, et al </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>interoperability hurdles (eg, USACE BIM standards ) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>To: software-as-a-service (SaaS), ie: models shared “in the cloud” (BIMaaS) </li></ul><ul><li>Maybe a hybrid of the two? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Today: VisualTAO, BIMserver.org, Onuma, Asite cBIM, Autodesk labs tools, Dezineforce </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Web 2.0: owner/user inputs (YouCanPlan), operational information (Pachube), etc </li></ul></ul>
